Update on Our Newest Litter of K-9 Unit Pups

On May 8th, 2013, after nearly 12 hours in labor, Police Service Dog (PSD) Mya gave birth to 11 healthy pups; 7 females and 4 males.

This is the first litter in almost 2 years for the proud parent dogs, PSD Judge and PSD Mya, both working Belgian Malinois of the Winnipeg Police Service.

The litter and mom are doing well.

It is anticipated that 4 of the puppies will be kept by the Winnipeg Police Service and raised by our canine quarries in the puppy rearing program. Arrangements have also been made for some pups to be raised by the Brandon Police Service and the Dakota Ojibway Police Service for future positions in their respective programs.

Watch this video for a sneak peek at the pups at five weeks of age.

More information on the Winnipeg Police Service K-9 Unit Breeding Program can be found here.

The Winnipeg Police Service K-9 Unit employs 12 teams -- 12 uniform officers and 23 canines - offering 24-hour coverage, seven days a week to protect the safety of citizens in Winnipeg.

With narcotic detector dogs, explosive detector dogs, tactical support dogs and several dogs cross-trained in multiple disciplines, each K-9 team is extensively trained for a particular objective prior to deployment.
